Providing Best-In-Class OEM Barrel Manufacturing Services at Every Price Point
If you’re a rifle or pistol manufacturer with a wide-ranging product selection, you’re intimately familiar with the struggles of sourcing optimal subassemblies and components for each of your unique product lines.
These headaches may revolve around quality control, supply chain management, pricing issues, or any number of other vendor-related complications. Vortakt strives to eliminate these logistical challenges through customized manufacturing solutions to best suit your unique product design.
Unmatched Versatility in Barrel Production Capability:
From the custom boutique single-point cut rifled shops to the mass-production facilities, most barrel manufacturers have set their eye on a single specialty or area of expertise. Vortakt has flipped this notion on its head by diversifying our services to accommodate the full spectrum of rifle and pistol barrel designs.
Our organization was built from the ground up with this fundamental principle in mind. It doesn’t take “Black Magic” to create a world record-setting barrel. It doesn’t take a massive government arsenal to deliver hundreds of thousands of barrels to manufacturers across the globe.
What it does take to support rifle and pistol barrel manufacturing across the firearm industry are three simple elements:
- World-Class Automation Technology
- Experienced Machinists and Engineers
- Excellent Vertical Integration Capabilities
By incorporating these three foundational principles across our five Barrel Performance Series, Vortakt is able to consistently exceed client expectations, regardless of the platform or performance requirements.
Vortakt 500 Series Barrels vs. The Competition:
When you visualize a custom shop that specializes in the production of single-point cut rifle barrels, more often than not you’ll find yourself in a dark windowless shop floor, confronted by a smattering of well-worn CNC machines and banks of manual gundrills and reamers dating back to the Second World War!
While some of the antique machine tools used in these shops have been continuously operating for as many as eight decades, there are now other means to deliver barrels of identical quality in a much more efficient and modern approach.
By leveraging state-of-the-art machine tools and technology from our sister division, Vortakt is able to produce single-point cut rifled barrels to match or exceed tolerances of these established custom shops in a more reliable, scalable, and cost-effective manner, without the extensive lead times typically commanded by other cut rifled barrel manufacturers.
Vortakt 400 Series Barrels vs. The Competition
While many premium barrel manufacturers have placed considerable emphasis on refining the button-rifling process by incorporating labor-intensive production steps like hand lapping, none offer as wide of a range in price and finish options as Vortakt Barrel Works.
Vortakt offers a 500 Series single-point cut rifled option for ultra-high-performance disciplines like Benchrest, ELR, and F-Class, 400 Series barrels for PRS, 3-Gun, and National Match applications, and 300, 400, and 500 Series options for mid-tier to high-end hunting rifles.
While many traditional job shops provide limited scalability and extensive lead times on product delivery, Vortakt is able to produce lead-lapped button-rifled barrels with unparalleled accuracy potential, providing competitive lead times and consistent deliveries through vertical integration and process optimization.
Vortakt 300 Series Barrels vs. The Competition
Vortakt’s 300 Series barrels provide an excellent option for brands requiring consistent barrel performance, filling a niche rarely supported by OEM barrel manufacturers.
By offering a high degree of flexibility in rifling and chambering options, Vortakt remains in tune with the latest market trends and needs of manufacturers in different geographic regions or marketplaces.
Vortakt supports this market segment by providing the efficiency expected from high volume barrel suppliers, and the consistency delivered by top tier boutique shops.
Vortakt 200 Series Barrels vs. The Competition
The 200 Series line of barrels is where Vortakt’s advanced automation technology provides an unparalleled competitive advantage. The increased efficiency provided by vertical integration in machine tool design and construction provides Vortakt with an incredible price advantage without sacrificing barrel performance.
200 Series clients can rely on Vortakt to maintain consistent quality control standards while still allowing for highly competitive pricing. Vortakt’s machine tool automation background serves to provide near-limitless scalability in production. This enables Vortakt to accommodate demand requirements from small, mid-sized, and large OEM accounts in an extremely volatile industry.
Vortakt 100 Series Barrels vs. The Competition
